Tindora Pickle

Pickle,is preferred in south Indian meals,I love home-made pickles.Used to have this tindora Pickle in our hostel and even my mom makes this at home.I just add salt and chilli powder to taste,never followed a measure.Here goes the recipe

For Pickle:
Chopped Tindora:1 cup(Wash the tindora,pat dry and leave aside for 1 hr and then cut into small pieces)
Fenugreek Powder:1/2 spn (dry roast fenugreek seeds and make it fine powder)
Mustard Powder: 2 spns (dry roast mustard seeds and make it fine powder)
Salt:To Taste
Chilli Powder:To Taste
Lemon Juice:2 spns
Oil:1/2 cup

For Tempering:
Oil:4 spns
Mustard Seeds:1 spn
Hinge:1/2 spn
Dry Red Chillies:3 no(cut)

1.In a bowl mix all the ingredients listed under pickle,mix evenly and put aside.
2.Now to make the tempering ,heat oil in a pan when hot add the mustard seeds and let them splatter now add dry red chillies,hinge and fry for 1 min,when done turn off the flame and let the tempering come down to room temperature.Now add this tempering to the pickle,mix and let it sit aside for 5-6 hrs and then it ready to serve.
This pickle stays gud for 10-15 days,so better make it in small batches.Make sure that u use a dry spoon each time or else the pickle would spoil when we use a moist spn.
